Agnes Forbes

Agnes passed over on April 24 at her home in Eastsound.

Her love for the island and its people were evident in her paintings. Agnes’ works were part of the early Orcas Island Artworks scene. Agnes was born January 19, 1920 and married her high school sweetheart (Andy) at Fort Lewis in 1942. Agnes and Andrew first visited the island in 1953 and moved here in 1986. She will be remembered for her humor, frankness and strength to confront life’s inequalities.

She is survived by her sons Gregor, Brian, Tim, their families and grandkids, Darren, Ira, Megan and Sean.
